Abstract: Serum levels of testosterone and sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG) were measured in 31 patients with breast carcinoma and 33 patients with carcinoma of the uterine cervix along with 30 healthy (control) women. Amongst the patients of breast cancer, significantly higher level of testosterone and a low level of SHBG were found in comparison with the other two groups. The study has revealed that testosterone and SHBG may have an indirect role in breast cancer, probably through their influences on the amount of bioavailable estrogen.
